Sunday Consolidation

Chris Kohler wrote a "clicks through controversy" article? Shocked I say! And his primary source of opinion is the CEO of a free-to-play company that has a vested interest in seeing the current primary way games are sold fail? I'm not naive enough to believe that there isn't massive change going on in the "traditional" games industry right now but like others have said, this is just another doom and gloom article designed to drive traffic by pissing people off. Kohler's a master at this manipulative drivel. Sony and Microsoft aren't perfect by any means but they don't make bets they know they're going to lose. Mobile and free-to-play are viable models that are here to stay but both are in a massive bubble right now, mobile especially and anyone who thinks their current rate of growth will continue indefinitely should go get a job selling sub-prime mortgage backed securities. If you still have doubts, look what happened to Zynga, a company worth more than EA a year ago that everyone thought was the future and whose stock is now worth less than their real estate and equipment within.
